Description 1966 vw beetle 1500 deluxe volkswagen type 1 early rare parts project original

1966 vw beetle 1500 deluxe project. Planned to keep and put back on the road but change in circumstances mean sadly it has to go. as far as Volkswagens go not too hard to get back on the road. was written off by insurance in 2010 due to a concrete block hitting the roof, this has been bashed out and a new screen fitted but as it was written off it has no log book. however it is still on dvla database so they know the car still exists but to get log book back it needs a VIC check (vehicle identity check) to make sure its not a ringer. chassis number and body tag match and are untouched. to get it checked to get logbook back it needs an mot hence I havnt applied for logbook. easy to do once moted. car has many rare pieces left in like:
crocked lockable gear shifter
white, d-ring steering wheel with Wolfsburg emblem
original radio
ivory type handles and knobs
Wolfsburg crested sill trim
interior is ok but will need a clean at the very least. headliner is hanging down and has been ripped out at the front, previous owner did this to bash dent out. carpet is not original. has fiberglass glove box with cassette player in (both radios not working, proberbly something basic. Immobiliser with sensors installed and working. indicators work but only one headlight and one rear light work.
engine I think is original to the car (engine number matches age of car). its a 1500 single port and runs great with no endfloat. a little leaky but arnt they all. all gears work as does clutch. engine has has oil change so should only need a tune up to be perfect. has heat exchangers fitted which are OK and has a fairly recent new exhaust. 12volt as far as I know (runs on 12volt battery without frying electrics)
now bad bits.....car needs welding in the usual vw places, channels and pans. also needs rear drivers inner arch fixing. have pictures worst rot.
brakes need sorting as the pedal goes to floor but no brakes, may just need bleeding and a service. handbrake works. bottom of doors are rotten and one a pillar is going. passenger side wings are very rotten. paint all over is peeling, cracking and bubbling but as far as I can see this is original paint.
can take a few turns of key to get starter motor to kick in. unsure if its a dodgy battery, starter motor or the imobiliser but I have a new motor from gsf which I can throw in. car is worth a lot in parts so no stupid offers. car is too good to break mind.
great car but please remember this is a PROJECT. do not expect to have it fixed in a week and drive into the sunset. viewing recommended before bidding. you bid to buy not to look. do not ask to hold the car as I will not hold it. first come first serve. if you leave a deposit it will be non refundable. do not bid if you are not 100% sure you want it.
if you need any more information call Jed on 07818354004. have many more pictures if required including one of the day it was written off to prove this was not crashed.
